India's Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi of Belarus avenged their French Open loss by beating Leander Paes and David Rikl of Czech Republic today to move into the final of the men's doubles event at Wimbledon. Top seeds Bhupathi and Mirnyi, who had been ousted by Paes and Rikl in the quarter-finals of the French Open last month, won 6-7 (6/8) 6-4 7-6 (9/7) 6-3 in a keenly contested match. Bhupathi and Mirnyi will now play fourth seeded Jonas Bjorkman of Sweden and Todd Woodbridge of Australia for the title. Bjorkman and Woodbridge had earlier defeated the Israeli pair of Johanthan Elrich and Andy Ram 6-2 4-6 6-2 6-1 in the first semi-final. (PTI)
